Dr. Denis Winder answered:

Still have scar tissue 2 years after gallbladder removal. What should I do?

Hard to answer

Scarring
Where is the scar tissue?All surgery causes scar. The scar may or may not cause problems. If there are no problems, usually scar slowly imporves, but can take several years. Thick scars that grow( keloids) often require pressure treatment, Cortisone injection, radiation, or surgery.

Scar tissue from gall bladder removal surgery; what can do to eliminate the pain?

Rare

Cicatrix
Depends on how the surgery was performed. Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery very rarely leaves any scar tissue. Open gallbladder surgery can cause more scar tissue, but it usually is fairly minor and rarely would cause intestinal blockage or pain. You may need to see a Gastroenterologist for evaluation.

Dr. Erik Borncamp answered:

Scar tissue from gall bladder removal surgery; what can be done to get rid of it and the pain?

Why scar tissue?

Bladder
Scar tissue by itself doesn't usually cause pain. Have you ruled-out other causes of the pain? Ulcers? gastritis? pancreatitis? a retained bile duct stone? incisional hernia? If no other cause can be found it might be due (indirectly) related to scar tissue if the scar was pinching your bowel or bile ducts... . Surgery could help to cut the scars but only after no other cause is found.

Dr. Loki Skylizard answered:

Have had open appendectomy for rupture and tubal, will I have gallbladder removed w/open surgery since I have lots of scar tissue?

Probably not

Gall_bladder
It is very common for someone to have successful laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder) after previous ruptured appendicitis and other surgical procedures. In fact, "cutting" scar tissue/adhesiolysis is very commonly done at hands of skilled/experienced minimally invasive surgeons. You should seek an experienced surgeon. Recommend you seek out younger generation, laparoscopic surgeon.

Are scope gallbladder removal scars big?

No

Gallbladder_removal
Most gallbladder removal scars are small. That's why they call it "bandaid surgery!" They should be less than an inch in length, although the one in the umbilicus can be a little larger if the gallbladder is full of stones or has a really large stone. There is now no reason to fear removing the gallbladder because of the scar as most people can have endoscopic removal.

Laparoscopic gallbladder removal - where will my scars be?

Depends

Camera port is usually in your belly button. Typically, up to 3 ports along your right rib cage. If appropriate, newer technique utilizes just one through your belly button if your surgeon is familiar with the approach

You most likely have an adhesion on the peritoneal side of the healed wound which can be painful. You may also have an incisional hernia . If you are having symptoms you should see the surgeon who did the procedure if possible
